Trademark paints a picture of American Okamiden release

The evidence continues to build for a worldwide release of Okamiden. Less than a week after a European trademark appeared for the DS Okami sequel, Siliconera discovered an American trademark for the same thing, filed February 12. At this point, it seems assured that Capcom will localize the game, unless it decides not to do so simply to punish us for presumptuousness.

At the same time, the company filed a trademark for Ghost Trick, another interesting DS game shown at TGS, whose North American release has already been officially announced. Between these two games and Ace Attorney Investigations, Capcom is single-handedly making continued DS ownership worthwhile in 2010.
